Restore Options (General) - Virtual Machine Disk Restore

Use this dialog box to control how disks on a virtual machine will be restored. The following options are available for disk restore:

Destination client

Select a Hyper-V Server from the list to indicate where you want to restore the VM disk files.

Specify destination path

Enter the path on the destination client where the VM disk files will be restored. If the specified path does not exist, it  is created during the restore process.

Click Browse to select a path on the destination client.

Virtual Disk Conversion

Select the Convert Disk to option and use the value VMDK (the only value shown).

Impersonate User

Select this check box to specify the user account which you want to use for the restore operation. By default, the Local System account on the destination client is used to perform the restore operation.

User Name

Enter the user name for the user account which you want to use for the restore operation. The user should have permissions to create files in the specified location on the destination client.

Enter the password for the user account which you want to use for the restore operation.

Confirm Password

Re-enter the password.

Advanced

Click this button to explore advanced options for restoring a disk.

Save As Script

Click this button to open the Save As Script dialog, which enables you to save this operation and the selected options as a script file (in XML format). The script can later be executed from the Command Line Interface using the qoperation execute command.

When you save an operation as a script, each option in the dialog has a corresponding xml parameter in the script file. When executing the script, you can modify the value for any of these XML parameters as needed.
